ESM management structure
A project of the size and complexity of ESM requires a clear concept to ensure its proper management before the topic will be eventually incorporated into the governance structure of PoF-IV. Hence, project management is a key-element of the project. The project Steering Group is the decision-making body of the consortium. It is responsible for the strategic planning, and ensures that the desired standards of excellence are achieved. The steering group also provides strategic leadership regarding the orientation of the project. The steering group is composed of two representatives from each of the participating centres. The Steering Group is chaired by the Project Coordinator Thomas Jung (AWI). The project's operations are managed by the Project Manager Luisa Cristini (AWI).
